How do you write the equation y+1/2=x-1/2 in slope intercept form?

Apr 22, 2018

$y = x - 1$

Explanation:

$\text{the equation of a line in "color(blue)"slope-intercept form}$ is.

•color(white)(x)y=mx+b

$\text{rearrange "y+1/2=x-1/2" into this form}$

$\text{subtract "1/2" from both sides}$

$y \cancel{+ \frac{1}{2}} \cancel{- \frac{1}{2}} = x - \frac{1}{2} - \frac{1}{2}$

$\Rightarrow y = x - 1 \leftarrow \textcolor{red}{\text{in slope-intercept form}}$
